This book covers, across eight individual chapters, the part played by the earliest V-bombers – the Vulcan, Victor and Valiant – and fighter bombers in the Nuclear Age. It consolidates a range of first-hand accounts and snippets from pilot testimony, combined with the author’s well-researched historical narrative, to create a rounded sense of events as they played out during this dynamic period of aviation history. It explores the era of the 1980s right up to the present-day, illustrating how things have developed and evolved over recent years in this sphere.
JET WARS IN THE NUCLEAR AGE 1972 To The Present Day
A recommended title that is not about the aircraft but the air campaigns fought, starting with the B52 raids on Hanoi, the US raid on Libya, through the Falklands and on to the Gulf Wars. The final chapter deals with the war on terror. This is superbly written, and well described, often in the words of the men who took part.
